The E class is 'the traditional Mercedes, the image of the brand in many parts of the world,' said Jürgen Hubbert, DaimlerChrysler board member for Mercedes-Benz passenger cars, Maybach and Smart. D/C invested E800 million in engineering development of the latest E class, plus E1.2 billion in tooling and production facilities at the plant in Sindelfingen, Germany. Daily capacity at Sindelfingen is 850 units for the sedan, plus 450 units for the station wagon due in early 2003. The new E class took 48 months to develop, compared with 72 months for the old model.
